One of the most notable role players of the Los Angeles Lakers, Danny Green, shared his thoughts on the Atlanta Hawks sophomore Trae Young:
“He’s put that team on his back and carried them for the most part. Even though their record doesn’t show it they’ve been a really tough team. They’ve been in some close ones. They’ve won some games that they should’ve lost. Overtime in Miami, they’ve been in some close ones. They’re on the brink of being a really good team if they bring in one or two guys in the offseason to give Trae some help; they’ll be an amazing team. But even without that, Trae is very dangerous,” Green said.
This season, Young is averaging 27.7 points, 4.2 boards, 1.2 steals, and 8.6 assists per contest, while shooting at 44.4% from the floor.
